Swirly Thanks

Today's card was created for the April Paper Smooches Challenge - Black & White with a pop of color!

I've had the Curls and Swirls set for a while and this card design has been in the back of my mind for a while, but I had so many other things I was working on that I never actually made it! This challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to get it on paper! I cut a card panel with the Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and then used my Misti to stamp a pattern of the curls and swirls onto it. I used the Misti specifically so I could re-stamp if my images weren't solid enough. Thank goodness I did! The end result is just beautiful! I was going to adhere my die cut Thanks onto the card without the vellum, but I felt like the sentiment just got lost in the design. In order to make it pop just a little more, I wrapped a strip of vellum around the panel and then adhered the sentiment on top of that. I added some silver thread beneath it before adhering for a touch more glimmer. I finished the whole card of with some Peacock and Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I also added a layer of glossy accents to the die cut Thanks to make it shiny. Love it!
